About the seminar

HISTORY ACTS workshops are led by activists, who give a short talk or presentation about their work. A historian or historians working on a relevant topic will then respond, before opening it up to group discussion.

HISTORY ACTS is a radical history forum, affiliated to the Raphael Samuel Centre, and based at the Institute of Historical Research. Our goal is to bring together radical and left-wing historians and contemporary activists. We want to find new ways to engage as academics with contemporary struggles, to learn from activists, and to see how we can use what expertise and institutional resources we have to provide active solidarity.
